Hey guys :o) SP here today…for our MAY project SCRAP check-in! So, May is always a huge month for us…we have birthdays and anniversaries and events and more! There are never enough hours during this month and everything seems chaotic! BUT, it is one of the FUNNEST months for us – and even with all of the busy days and nights – we enjoy it sooooo much :o) This year…the month of May was made all-the-more crazy as we had a huge vacation in April…which also spilled into May! So, we had an even later start on all of our planning, etc.! It all worked out wonderfully though, as it always seems to, in the end :o) I took over 1500 photos in May…so as you can imagine – there was NO WAY to even get a small sampling of everything on my pages…so i just tried to focus on a few (and will add more pages later, if not an entire album). I journaled quite a bit and just worked it in around the ‘stuff’ on my ‘main’ page :o) I really enjoyed working with the templates…the strips of paper allowed me to have fun with patterns and color, which I always love (especially since my photos were so full of color, too!)! I mixed and matched papers from the Darling Paper Collection with elements and flowers from quite a few kits (most of which I recolored a bit to match the papers). Anyhoo – these pages just make me happy…and I’m sure yours will do the same for you :o) So…if you haven’t already – GET SCRAPPIN’!
Now, how about some BEAUTIFUL and FANTABULOUS inspiration from the team and some of our super talented gallery members? As always, I enjoyed browsing through the project SCRAP 2012 gallery to find all of these inspiring layouts! We each approach our layouts in a different way…some starting a layout with the journaling, others with the photos, and many with a kit or papers in mind. I think for me, it’s a mixture of all three, lol! Well, with project SCRAP…the pages are somewhat predetermined by the photos that we have taken for the month…that offers a great starting point :o) But beyond that…we each get to have fun and flex our creative muscles with our monthly pages! I love how…even though we all start with the same templates – all of our layouts end up so unique and personal :o) LOVE!
OK, so how about we get started with Rosy’s pages?! Again, she does not disappoint :o) The GORGEOUS photo she used for one of the ‘papers’ is just breathtaking…and then the focus on the stunning main photo?! BRAVO :o) The way she moved the photo and readjusted things is also genius! Just great, great inspiring :o)
Next, we have my sweet friend Lu’s layouts! Seriously – can you just feel the happiness in their family via that main photo? Such a real and candid moment, full of love :o) Happy 10th, Little Bug! As per usual – Lu’s pages are full of fun moments and precious memories…and beautiful scrapping! Totally love how she did the MAY title on the heart! I was just so happy to see these pages in the gallery…and I know you’ll pull great inspiration from them as well!
We also have Kylie’s totally gorgeous layouts! It’s funny, it looks like May is a big month for quite a few of us…with lots of birthday celebrations :o) I love the richness to these pages…and, of course, the beautiful fall photos! Thanks, Kylie!
Finally, we have these super cool pages from sdclifford…a new Shabby Shoppe gallery member (WELCOME!) :o) The patriotic color scheme is so perfect with the CUTE and FUN photos…and the title – WOW :o) Love it all – thanks for sharing with us, sdclifford!
As always, there is MORE inspiration in our special, project SCRAP 2012 gallery! You’ll find many more layouts there – so be sure to check it out…and most importantly – UPLOAD YOUR LAYOUTS!!!!! We love sharing in everyone’s 2012…and love that you guys are joining us for project SCRAP 2012 - THANK YOU :o)
Since I shared a little ‘sneak peek’ of the May pages during the last ‘check-in’…I felt obligated to do the same this time, LOL! So…below, you will see just a little image of the templates to come for June :o) I won’t always be able to share the little teaser…but IF we have them ready in time – I will always try, from here on out :o) These will be shared with everyone next Thursday – here at the BLOG :o) I KNOW we will have have fun scrapping with them! We are already off to a BUSY START in June here at our house…and no doubt, will have PLENTY of photos to fill the layouts, lol!
Thanks so much for stopping by today…and for continuing the project SCRAP journey with us :o) And, you won’t want to miss tomorrow as Casharina shares some hybrid inspiration! ENJOY your day/night! XOXO — SP
